January 3, 2013

Benton Police Officer Chris Goss is credited with saving an 88-year-old woman from a burning structure on Derby Circle.
Bruce Armstrong, fire marshal for the Benton Fire Department, said Goss crawled down a smoke-filled hallway to reach Jessie Mae Flowers, who was in bed in a rear bedroom of the structure at 2908 Derby Circle.
The fire was reported around 10:10 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 26, during a period when many local residences were without electrical power.
Upon entering the structure, Goss "encountered thick, black heavy smoke, which had filled the house," Armstrong said.
